Bird Boy Writing Activity

From the multi-award-winning author of No Ballet Shoes in Syria, comes a story of migration, conservation, healing and hope as a grieving boy forms an unbreakable bond with an injured bird.

Bird Boy follows eleven-year-old Will, who is sent to stay with his uncle in the mountains. After years trapped in a high-rise flat, with only birds for company, Will doesn’t know how he’ll survive a place like this, that is until he discovers an osprey nest, with two small chicks inside.

When tragedy almost strikes again one stormy night, and one of the chicks is knocked out of the nest – breaking a wing, Will is determined to save her.

Tell your own animal tale inspired by Bird Boy! Devised by author Catherine Bruton, this fun creative writing activity will take you through 8 easy steps to writing a fantastic story from an animal’s point of view.
